Tell us about your PARTNER(S). What did they look like? How well did you know them, had you hooked up before? How/Where did you meet them? How did you feel about them before the hookup? She was blonde, and petite, and an artist, and just the perfect, brilliant, adorable New York slut.
How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We spent a ton of time together and wanted each other constantly and intensely – eventually, it emerged that on an afternoon when I visited her garage just to calm myself down, she went into her room and got herself off. I somehow missed her attraction, and she thought I was happily partnered with the mother of my kid. Which I was not. Happy, I mean.
What happened DURING the hookup? What sexual behaviors took place (e.g., oral, vaginal, anal, kinky stuff)? How did you feel during it? How did they behave toward you? Were they a good lover? What did you talk about? How did it end? The first night I had her for dinner, both of our kids went to play and that was just the night. We knew. We made out in the foyer, before she’d removed her coat. Then we drank a lot, fast, and had drunk, inaccurate, uncommitted sex. We’d soon be fucking a lot, often well, but that first night was magical, except I barely remember.

We haven’t spoken in months.
